Frequently Asked Questions
Where is the conference held? The conference will be held at the Rhode Island Convention Center and Omni Hotel in Providence, RI.
Where can I stay? We encourage you to stay at the Omni Hotel. We have a negotiated rate with them. Did you know your stay at the host supports the Women of Influence cost for the conference? The more that stay at the host, the lower our cost for the conference! This enables us to offer you more conference experience. .
How do I reserve my stay at the Host? Room reservations open in the early Spring. Stay tuned for info. You can reserve one room or more, but it must be paid for at time of reservation. There will be no unpaid room blocks permitted.
Are there any discounts available? Yes! We offer a student discount of $35 for students ages 16 and 25 (with college ID).
Are there scholarships or financial assistance available? Yes, we have a limited amount of assistance available – so please contact Christan Causey at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Depending on the need, either a discounted rate will be given or a full scholarship. We are also inviting other women and churches to sponsor one scholarship. If you or your church is interested in becoming a sponsor, please let us know!
Is food available onsite? Yes! A HUGE mall is actually attached to the hotel and convention center which will make shopping and eating so simple with many options. We will give more information closer to time of registration opening.
Can I bring my children with me? Women of Influence conference is for YOU to get away, relax, and renew your soul and spirit. For this reason, we encourage you to leave the kiddo’s with family or friends. However, if there are extenuating circumstances or you are nursing, we welcome you to bring them.
Are there refunds available if I am unable to attend? Due to the immediate incurred cost of registration and preparation of your arrival at conference, we do not offer refunds (outside of emergency/crisis events). However, we can transfer the registration to another woman who can attend.
Is parking available? Yes! Parking is available for a fee. Unfortunately, we were not able to negotiate that into the cost. However, we are offering a special discounted early bird rate to consider this additional cost, so make sure you register in time. Registration should open around April.
